| January 10, 2021 | 0 Comments

Tuxedo, a five-year old, Standard Royal Party Poodle, who resides in Point Loma, recently made his Hollywood debut during the Christmas season being featured in “DJ Lance Rocky Harmony Hills Happy Holiday Special.”

DJ Lance Rock of the famed kids TV show “Yo Gabba Gabba” on Nick, Jr. had produced a holiday special to Live stream some holiday cheer during the COVID lockdown. DJ Lance enlisted the talent of San Diego’s own Tuxedo the puppy and featured Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Bootsy Collins and pop culture designer Paul Frank, and soulful singers Ellis Hall and Henry Invisible, and other awesome guest stars!

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Vince Clarke of Depeche Mode wrote the theme song for Harmony Hills. The show also features animation from around the world, as well as introducing children to a diverse array of animals, cultures, customs and music.

Reminiscent of shows from the 70s, like “The Jeffersons,” “What’s Happening” and “Carol Burnett,” DJ Lance Rock, Tuxedo and friends sing and dance their troubles away.

Tuxedo, who is recognized for his large size and beautiful tuxedo looking natural coat, was raised as a service animal. He cares for Barry Soper who adopted Tuxedo from a shelter to assist him in his recovery from a life changing car accident.

Barry Soper is also a San Diego best-selling author, known for his famed book “A Bum Deal.” The book shares the life of the “Bum Fights,” homeless men in San Diego who turned their lives around and advocated for homeless across the United States. Look out for “A Bum Deal” being turned into a motion picture to be released in 2024.  

Soper and Tuxedo, who reside in Point Loma, are often seen in the Downtown San Diego area, and surrounding communities.
